+
[[Category:Archive]]
 
 
= Installation =
 
* Download from https://www.archlinux.org/download/, (ex. archlinux-2010.05-netinstall-i686.iso because EEE PC is 32 bit machine.
 
* Refer [[Install_from_a_USB_flash_drive]] to write iso file into USB stick.(ex. UNetBootin under windows)
 
* Disable '''boost boot''' in BIOS Setup to allow USB stick bootable at boot time.
 
* Follow [[Official_Arch_Linux_Install_Guide]] to install till reboot.
 
* Follow [[Beginners'_Guide]] to install your hardware driver and desktop.
 
* remember to add '''hal''' in DAEMONS line of /etc/rc.conf , it will automatic detect all hardware.
 
 
 
/etc/rc.d/hal start  # detect and install all hardware
 
 
 
== boot loader setup of Kernel ==
 
I just use standard kernel. eeepc_wmi module will be loaded.
 
Note: add acpi_osi=Linux line in kernel boot loader, to let eeepc_laptop module loading. Otherwise Fn+F2 won't workable.
 
 
 
= Wireless =
 
The card is a Atheros Communications Inc. AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (module: ath9k)
 
It is automatic detected by '''hal'''.
 
 
 
= Xorg =
 
About the Video(Intel 945GME), It is automatic detected by '''hal'''.
 
 
 
= Touchpad =
 
It is automatic detected by '''hal'''.
 
* install '''xf86-input-synaptics'''
 
 
 
= ACPI =
 
big_gie created a acpi package to support the acpi events: [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=23318 acpi-eeepc-generic]. This package was inspired by many others.
 
 
 
== Touchpad toggle - Silver Button ==
 
edit /etc/conf.d/acpi-eeepc-generic.conf
 
COMMANDS_BUTTON_BLANK=("/etc/acpi/eeepc/acpi-eeepc-generic-toggle-touchpad.sh")
 
 
 
== Sleep Fn+F1 ==
 
Fn+F1 or closing lid should put the eee pc to sleep. It calls "acpi-eeepc-generic-suspend2ram.sh".
 
 
 
== Wifi Fn+F2 ==
 
Pressing Fn+F2 will call "acpi-eeepc-generic-wifi-toggle.sh" which will toggle the wireless card. Be sure to load "rfkill" module for this to work.
 
edit /etc/conf.d/acpi-eeepc-generic.conf
 
WIFI_DRIVERS=("ath9k")
 
 
 
== Brightness Fn+F5/F6 ==
 
BIOS v1504 has controlled it.
 
 
 
== Camera Fn+F7 ==
 
edit /etc/conf.d/acpi-eeepc-generic.conf:
 
COMMANDS_SCREEN_OFF=(/etc/acpi/eeepc/acpi-eeepc-generic-toggle-webcam.sh)
 
To use the camera, install mplayer or luvcview.
 
luvcview -f yuv
 
mplayer -vf screenshot -fps 30 tv://  # press 's' to capture
 
 
 
= extend battery life =
 
* install '''cpufreq'''
 
* edit /etc/rc.conf
 
MODULES=(... acpi-cpufreq cpufreq_ondemand cpufreq_powersave)
 
DAEMONS=(... cpufreq)
 
* edit /etc/conf.d/cpufreq
 
governor="ondemand"
 
min_freq="800MHz"
 
max_freq="1.5GHz"
 
ref: [[cpufrequtils]]
 
 
 
== Notes ==
 
 
 
= Software =
 
Don't bother installing KDE or Gnome on it. The screen might be bigger then the S101, but it's still a small machine.
 
 
 
== LXDE ==
 
I suggest [[LXDE]] for a _really_ lightweight environment. It looks like Windows initially but you can configure as you like:
 
pacman -S lxde
 
 
 
= Hardware =
